Transfer latest: 23rd July

Stoke City are once again being linked with a move for Carlton Cole.

ESPN's Harry Harris, who enjoys close links with West Ham joint chairman David Sullivan, reports tonight that United are willing to accept around 12million for the striker having reduced their asking price from 15million.

Stoke, says Harris, are willing to pay around 9million straight up with another 4million in bonus payments to follow depending upon certain criteria being fulfilled. However with Cole having previously rejected Stoke's advances on more than one occasion any mooted deal looks unlikely, regardless of the club's apparent desire to cash in on the player.

Sky Sports resort to that old chestnut 'West Ham are lining up a move' tonight with regards to Leicester 'keeper CHris Weale. The 28-year-old is said to have had an excellent season for the promotion-winning Foxes and is thought to have been keenly watched by a number of clubs. Long-term followers of KUMB.com may possible recall that Weale spent time here on trial back in 2004 whilst still at Yeovil.

Loic Remy's representatives appear to be working overtime, for Arsenal are now being cited by a number of French media outlets as being interested in the 23-year-old striker. West Ham have already lost out to the north Londoners on Marouane Chamakh, who joined the Gunners on a free transfer, but a move for Remy would appear unlikely despite the reports. West Ham are still thought to be in pole position as the only club to meet Nice's valuation of the player who appears on the face of it to be less than enamoured at the possibility of moving to east London.

Milton Caraglio is set to fly to England early next week for talks over a possible move to West Ham, according to the player himself. Speaking to Radio Rosario, the Argentinian said: ""At this moment I am in Italy to get some records of my European passport. I'll be in London from Monday to discuss my transfer with the English club." The 21-year-old 6'2" forward currently plays for Rosario in Argentina.

''This is the same Stoke who nearly signed Dean Ashton but failed on his medical when he was at the end of his career - and this is also the same Stoke that signed him in the January transfer market (though they didn't). They maybe interested in him but if West Ham want to do well he's going nowhere.''
